In a national survey of 2,541 US adults conducted March 27-April 9, 2018, roughly seven-in-ten Americans (72%) say it is essential for the U.S.to continue to be a world leader in space exploration.

"Strong public support that the USA should continue to be at the vanguard of space exploration is widely shared across gender, educational and political groups".

The head of the U.S. space agency is in talks with several global companies about taking over day-to-day operations at the International Space Station in the coming years, USA media said on Tuesday. Gerst is the only astronaut of the mission that had participated in a space mission in 2014.

Administrator James Bridenstine says NASA is already talking with private companies about potentially taking over the space lab after 2025.

The American that went up in this mission is at her first flight to outer space. The complex was essentially completed with the retirement of NASA's space shuttles in 2011.

Understandably, several fans took to Twitter to thank Durant for their free meal. The free tacos are part of Taco Bell's "Steal a Game, Steal a Taco" promotion.

As for NASA, after the retiring of the Space Shuttle, it launched zero manned missions from U.S soil and using US technology. It may, but most Americans still believe NASA's role will be vital in the future. "All of them have come back to Earth", he said. Interest in orbiting the Earth is greater among younger generations.

Private companies like SpaceX, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, Boeing, Bigelow Airspace, and Lockheed Martin have outdone governments and embarked on what Futurism referred to as Space Race 2.0. Most Americans, 80 percent of them, displayed confidence that private companies will make a profit from space exploration.

Only about 7 percent of Americans surveyed said they payed close attention to space news, hearing "a lot" about NASA and commercial space in the past year.

It cost $100 billion to build and orbits about 250 miles (400 kilometers) above the Earth. "We need commercial to step up in ways that we haven't seen before", he said. Only 27 percent of baby boomers are interested in space tourism, but as much as 63 percent of millennials would like to travel into space as tourists. However, majority want the agency to stick close to home.

A trio of astronauts from Russian Federation, the United States and the European Space Agency blasted off Wednesday for a mission on the International Space Station. Similarly, 18 percent consider sending astronauts to Mars to be a top priority.
